you shouldnt get any chatter from a light weight flywheel, you'll get chatter from a puck style clutch disk though...

Wrong. Watch YouTube videos on lighter flywheels and listen to the chatter. Even my paperwork for my ACT Streetlite flywheel explain that chatter will be heard after removing the oem dual mass flywheel.

Educate yourself.

depends how you define chatter...seems to vary community to community

older school guys I find tend to define chatter as the abrupt jerking motion an unsprung 3 or 4 puck clutch makes. Newer guys tend to define it as the marbles-in-a-coffee-pot sound that a lightweight flywheel reveals

Idk i have the same issue with my clutch it kills my foot driving threw cities. but then again mines shifting funny and most likely needs tlc to resolve the issue

Hey, where in CA do you live? I need to replace by rear main seal and might as well replace my clutch/flywheel while its apart. But I'm looking to learn and have someone help with the install. Would your guy hook it up if you're in the area?!

Thanks

Don't expect a response, poster hasn't been on forum for 4.5 years. You bumped a dead thread.
